The story behind the art.
It began with an idea…
Once upon a time, in a galaxy far away Cale Turpen dreamed of pressing machines to skin and creating some of the most breathtaking body art that anyone had ever seen. Day after day, grinding away at this job and that (even as a nightclub bouncer!) all the while harboring that deep desire to live out his ultimate “dream gig.”
Fast forward to 2009, Cale FINALLY gets an opportunity to apprentice at a popular Tulsa tattoo studio. He put in 7 great years there, all the while traveling coast-to-coast and internationally showcasing his amazing talents. Then in 2015, among several strange (and some would say lucky) twists of fate, Turpen was able to open the doors on his very own studio, Geek Ink.
Being able to meld his two favorite universes: Tattooing and Nerdery.
An avid, die hard, absolutely dedicated Star Wars fan, you’ll notice the numerous Star Wars references around the entire shop. Amassing his collectibles alongside his body art masterpieces. Joining him are some of Tulsa’s most talented artists and their ever expanding floor space and guest artists, Geek Ink is bringing back the attention Tulsa deserves in the Tattoo world.
Writing the next pages in this sci-fi tattoo fantasy, is up to you.
